I close my see and i can picture a vivid scene of skinny kids in loose fitting Ts swaying with sunnys and beads. I'm there, against my better instincts, grooving to the New Order synths, the laconic vocals and big, sparkly production.

Burn Slow is an apt title for this one, but it totally gets there. Some really great build and pay off, catchy lyrics and delivery and a really solid bonding of synth and guitar. This is tops.

The excitable new wave nerd in me is really stoked with this tune. Great build up and pay off and you can tell that a whole lot of effort's gone into getting the production spot on here.
